Jack and Joseph Nasser of NGN Releasing are remaking the 1946 Orson Welles thriller The Stranger and have set Joseph Ruben (Sleeping With the Enemy, The Forgotten) to direct, says THR.
The original was directed by Welles, who also acted in the film. Edward G. Robinson starred as an agent of the War Crimes Commission on the hunt of one of the engineers of the Holocaust, now hiding out in Connecticut.
Newcomer Alanna Belak wrote the script for the remake, which will focus on reformed serial killer who has reinvented himself as a small-town professor but is visited by his former partner, who wants them to start killing together again.
